The Hood River glacier. (Hood River, Or.) 1889-1933, August 18, 1904, Image 4

Below is the OCR text representation for this newspapers page. It is also available as plain text as well as XML.

As the Glacier reporter meandered
down th street lasfc Tlinroday after,
noon in search of new story for the
next week's paper he accosted Judge
ByrkeU ol White Salmon.- who inniso
him to cross the river ana take look
at the Glades ranch. The judge thought
there might be a good chanee for a story
there. And be wa nt(ht.
It was the reporter's first visit- to the
famous ByrkeU ranch. What lis saw
would fill a page and then some. There
were acres ana acres 01 meaaow, wnn
hundreds of Ions of hat in the stack
and more to cut, tons of tomatoes bear
ing the green vines to the ground,
strawberry fields that would constitute
an ordinary farm, bands of sleek Jersey
rattle, fat Hhropahiwm, spacious pens
filled- with a crossed breed of-Poland
China sod Berkshire hogs, ranch haals
busy- everywhere, women . and girls
parking fruit.
This big farm contains 100 acres of
the richest lsad in) the state of Wash
ington. There is land here, if cut up
into small tracts, to support 35 families.
The ranch is easily worth' 1 100,000.
There Un't another place like it in the
state, nt It cannot be daplioattd in
famous old Oregon.
The newspaper man saw some other
fine farms. One of theo four and one
half acres In extent, belongs to 8. C.
Zeigler, who ten years ago contracted
to buy the land for f 1 ,000. Mr. Zefgler
had but a the- timet Today, Mr.
Jtyrkirtt aayi the iiiaa la worth i,lM.
Think of it! He started in a decade ago
with four and one-half acres- and today
could convert his holdings into a snug
fortune. He owns besides this little
ilace, a 320-acre apple raiieh farther
lack In the hills; amV at Trout Lake a
820-acre hav farm? He-is tire- financial
pillar for a mercantile establishment,
has money In the bank and pays cash
for everything.
He has Jos completed a 2,H dwell
ing, and never makes less tiian 4ou an
acre from hie land. ' He- haso acoom
plished all these things boaiina. of
intelligent, industrious and persistent
efforta. But the storv of, his acoonv
plishinents must- be left for another
who wilt alw have somothinf to tell
later. The Glacier news gatherer knows
now where to seek lor good stories.
Further on up the riwr is the place
of J. P. Kga,the nia whom the voters
ol White Hamion intend to make a
county commissioner at the election
this full.
Then comet D, D. McChire. Mr.
McClure purchased nine acres of
raw land here two years ago for $2,?50,
to Judge Byrkett ssys, - The greater
part of the land is already cleared and
planted to strawberries'. Ho- valuable is
the land, that little draws are filled and
leveied for. planting, i, In among the
rocks are hundreds of chorry trees.
This is their first summer, but without
drop of water they have made vigor
ous growth and look green and thrifty.
The judge pointed out a reservoir which

by means of a pipe line system and

capacity of 300,0(10 gallons.

ping, f wo-thirds of his crop is on the
markets before the bulk of the valley
berrieere started toward the hovers.
Pigs are sort of a byproduct with the
owner of the Byrkett ranch. He aims
to make front 1400 to $500 a year- oa
hogs, which he feeds on the refuse- from
the ranch.
He aims to keen seven or eiglit head
of dairy cattle- this winter. Two rears
ago he had 40 cows that brousht him in
$250 to $: a month from the tale of
butter. The butter he disposed of to
the steamboat eumoanies and to natrons
in the town of Hood Kivr Bvrkett
butter has a guaranteed quality. 'Cattle

up a good sited bunch this fall.
Mr. Byrkett has 13 acres planted to
corn three weeks ago on land that was
Covered for two months with hiah
water. From this land he expects to
gather 300 tons of ensilage. This is
worth $." a ton aud can be produced at a
cost of $1 a ton, says the judge.
Hay is produced in abundance at this
farm. As an example of the fertility of
the meadow lands on, this farm, Mr.
Byrkett pointed ontone field of 13 acres
on wliica IX bead of cattle had been
pasturing since the middle of March.
and mowing machines were at work iu
the very same fie d last Thursday, cot.
ting hay that sltould bale 13 tons. Two
and three crops of hav are cut each year
rom lue oouoma. mis year one 10
acre tract turned off ten tons of hay at
the second cutting.
A cheat grass peculiar alone to the
uianrs ram-n is produced m a'Hinaance,
The seed from this grass was tent to the
Smithsonian institute, where., it- -was
given a long-sounding Latin name and
pronounced to be the earliest maturing
grass known. A sample was sent to
the experiment station at the Oregoa
Agricultural' college, where the ssmt
report wss made. . This prut Keeins to
be peculiar to Mr. Byrkett's ranch, and
he lias a standing contract with a Port,
land seed company for all the reed he
can thresh at 10 cents a pound. The
grass yields about 100 bushels to the
acre, and makes the finest sort of feed
for horw and cattle. 1
There are three barns on the place,
the largest one of which cot$H000. This
one is 140x54 feet in extent end 10 feet
to the square. The main floor of the
barn is cemented and contains stalls for
98 head of cattle. In addition to tint
there are large calf pens. On the farm
are two barns, one 40x70, tne other
30x80. ' i
Judge A. R. Byrkett bought this place

$50,000 have been-expended ln improve,

an offer of $15,000 for 20 neres.
The improvements to the land include
the clearing ' of the- gronnd, fencing,
buildings, tiling anil piping for irrigat
ing purposes. Here is one of the finest
system of. irrigation to be found on the
I'aciflc coast. Twenty thousand feet of
iron pities cover 25 aure of the place.
In addition to this there are rjooo feet of
wood Homing and aliout 20,000 feet of
tour-inch clay tiling) The pipe lines
are arranged ayatainatically about the

Mr. Byrkett Mieves to come nearer to
thereat thing, and he believes he can
cover more ground witli the same
amount of water.
The tiling which carries off the sur
rHw water in the winter sub-irrigates
the land in the summer. The iron
pipes are in the gr. und below plowing
depth, but Mr.', Byrkett suys when he
lays mora pilie it will be on top of the
ground, as this gives the sun a chance

tom, Apple Culture Increases In Faror.
A good orchard oil the farm adils great
value to it. It annually provides a
healthful product for the family, saving
doctors hills, ami there is always a sur
plus that brings in ready cash. Unlike
most other crops, the orchard does not
require annual investment and work to
secure returns. After the orchard it
once set and has hod a few years culti
vation it becomes thoroughly established
and with comparatively no labor other
than gathering the Imuntifully yielding
fruits the farmer finds his on-hard year
uy year increasing in prouuciion.
In passing through the country, the
farms where there are conspicuous or
chards, especially those that have had
intelligent eare, present a thrifty and
solid look, very different from the orch
ardless ones. ' "
Maryland peachet at one time had a
national reputation. Through various
causes the peach growing sections are
now successfully and profitably raising
ot Iter crops. . The peuoh on the peninsula
teotion has eeaaed to yitdd a profit and
invasions of the San Jose scale order
lessened the life of the tree, hence the
abandoment of peach culture. Small
fruits, such as .current a,, raspberries,
blackberries, gooseberries, etc.. have in
a degree replaced the peaches. The
Lucretia dewnerrv in some counties of
the Kastern Whore is proving to-be aa
great a money win our at the old time
peacn crop.i
In western Maryland, also In Harford
and Cecil conntiet the apple is becoming
lamons. r.xperis who examined the
fruit exhibited last fall at the Agricul
tural fairs of Harford, Washington and
Fredrick counties said the apples were
a revelation to them. They declared
thev had never nwn llimr
bf the leading- varitie and the flavor
was beyond criticism. The specimens
ol Ben Davisi York I mperiel and North
ern Spy raised in what might now be
classed as the apple-growjng section oi
Maryland are the equal in every respect
In site and quality to t hone grown in any
other section of the country. The extra
ordinary coloring these verities assumed
is unequaled.
Growing choice apples in a coinmer
way will in the near future lecome an
other of Maryland's prominent indus
tries. I-ant fall the yield of apples in
Frederick and Washington counties gave
an illustration of how eager apple buy
ers are to purchase Maryland grown
fruit. The large piles of ' high-colored
fruit and the great number of barrels in
the orchards made pict ures such as have
made ectione of the New York apple
regions famous.
The cold ttorsge problem has been
ciphered out of its experimental stage
and placed on a practical basis. Instead
of damaging the apple-market it is now
concluded that cold storage is having an
important influence in octeodiuai the
apple markets botji at home and abroad,
and is also intiuenlisl in rawing the
standard of American fruit growing.
Apple growing should be a. conspicoua
feature on all farms where it it known
the fruit doet well. Such verities should
lie raised as are demanded by the trade.

Expects to Start (. Dairy,
J. W. Strong, recently here from the
Willamette valley, has. great faith in
the dairy business, and believes it will
pay well as an industry in Hood River.
Mr. Htrong says when he settled in the
Willamette valley ten year ago the
farmers there were all in debt.- Shortly
after Mr Markham of the - Southern
Pacific induced the farmers of Western
Oregon to enter dairying, Willamette
valley farmers who were the- owners ol
clover fields' and cow and, bad more
money to lonu- than they could find
takers for.
Mr. Strong owns five acres about three
miles south of this city, and also bat a
40 acre tract in the Ouell district, where
he will build a home next spring. About
15 acres of the land he tayt he will plant
to apple trees ami small fruits and the
remainder he will-, utilize a a , dairy
farm. "
With the great amount of hay that
will be produced in Hood River valley
in few years, Mr. Strong believes, the
dairy business would be very profitable.
He would like to tee creamery estab
lished op if not this a cream route,
whereby the. cn-anr could be collected
and shipped to Portland. ,
Ed Williams Has-Runaway,
Ed Williams experienced e exciting
runaway last Thursday- night with a
team of hoiees assured to be gentle end
trustworthy.- Kd was returning from a
trip to Winans ami had driven the team
at a lively pace for three-quaters of an
hour anil just as he reached the- top of
the hill at William Davidson's, one of
the brutes began to buck.
The animal was calmed, the- harness
examined and a new start made. 'In
another minute there' was tome more
bucking. The cayuse managed to get
astride the (Mile and to kick the other
horse, when they both- began to hit the
high places.
Kd, finding the horses uncontroliible,
leuped to lite ground, and as he did so
wrenched his knee in tome manner.
He was limping about with a bruited
limb the next day.
The buggy landed In a clump of oaks
naur Mm, 0 rapper's place somewhat
the worse for wear. The ssme team had
started to runaway the day before with
Dr. Brosius holding the rains. Ed has
handled some wild horses in his time,
hut says this is the first runaway he
ever had. He is very thankful that no
one was with him at the time.
Compliment the. League President. -
Walter Lyon, editor of the WeHt Side
Enterprise at Independence, makes the
following eoiupliineutary mention- of
the Meet ion oi Hon. K. L. Smith as
president of the Oregon Development
"Tho league bus s'arted off well. For

most consideration were those by Mr,
Smith, afterward elected president, and

Surprised at Valley's Extent.
Postmaster Atwell of Forest Grove
had always heard n great deal about the
famous Hood Kiver valley, but when he
vWted here last week he was very much
suriH-ised at the extent and uosmole re
son rce of the country.
Mr. Atwell is an orchardiat ta Forest
Grove, and has. secured a great many
scions for grafting and budding purposes
from K. L. Smith, with whom he is well
acquainted. The Forest- Grove . nosf
master it also a former neighbor of Dr.
Laraway, when that gentleman wat
resident of Iowa.;
Mr. Atwood was taken through tome
of the large orchards. He was pleased
with the manner of cultivation and the
general thrifty appearance' Of the fruit
trees. Being an orchardiat himself he
could -appreciate the fine work of the
flood Kiver apple growers.
Mr. Atwell promised Mr. Smith that
he would make evewy effort to attend
the lruU fair to lie held here in October,
